More julle.
Wil paar goed uitvind oor die sfa, soos meeste van julle weet is ek in die mark vir n 4x4 maar ek is nie mal oor die diesel of ou petrol idee nie. So ek oorweeg n bakkie met n lexus engine in.

Een bekommernis wat ek het is dat indien ek n sfa koop hy gesteel gaan word, toyota is baie populer onder die monsters. Anders moet ek na die vigo shape kyk wat al beter is in terme van alarm en chip sleutels.

Terug na die sfa.

Hoe maklik kry mens nog parte vir hulle?
En vir hoe lank sal mens nog parte kan kry?
Is die sfa baie beter as die ifs?
Indien ek toyota doen sal dit slegs doe sfa of vigo wees.

Dankie.

Jammer vir die Engels

Interior trim parts are getting hard to find.
Mechanical parts and seals are still easy to find from the dealers and scrapyards.
If you have a 3/4Y petrol engine then an entire new engine is about R8k, since they are shared with the HiAce/Inyathi.
For 4x4ing the SFA will outperform an IFS easily.
There are various anti-theft things that can be fitted.
Happy trails
Nic

Altwee is heetemal goed genoeg vir 4x4 ,maar as jy gaan toer of overland is IFS miskien beter ,meer gerieflik ,
Die SFA is natuurlik my keuse . Die mooiste bakkie ooit ,vra vir Robbie om n foto van syne to plaas vir jou

Hulle is baie maklik om te onderhou.

2.2 of 4Y. Die ou donkie van die lot, baie goeie engine en hard, parte baie eenvoudig om te kry. Net stadig met die Carb. Kan met Efi verbeter na baie beter rit.

2.4 of 22R, Selfde as bo, baie goeie krag wat mens kan kry op sy Efi ombouing. Is werklik skrikwekkend as jy 160km/h haal met die engine en die ding wil nog.

2.8 diesel. Donkie maar goed met branstof verbruik

Lexus ombouing: Kry al die inligting, as dit nie reg is van die begin af nie dan het jy 'n kat in die sak wat jou kopsere gaan gee vir lank. Brandstof verbruik is 'n ?, maar krag baie. Partekan mens kry, sorg net dat jy die nuwer generasie 1UZ vvTi kies.

2.5lt Ford engine ombouing, selfde as bo, maar brandstof verbruik baie goed. Ouens kry tussen 10 to 11.5km/L. Parte altyd beskikbaar.

V6 Ford ombouing, goed so paar jaar gelede, parte word bitter skaars

2.4lt Turbo diesel Toy. Selfde as elke ombouing, kry dit reg. Branstof verbruik soos die 2.5lt Ford. Parte kan mens kry maar skaars.

2.7lt of 3RZ ombouing. Baie truuks om regte kry. Brandstof verbruik nie goed.

Bogenoemde is wat ek al te doene gekry het.
